Sotheby's

Sotheby's grundandes i London den 11 mars, 1744, när Samuel Baker auktionerade ut "flera hundra sällsynta och värdefulla böcker" i biblioteket Rt Hon Sir Johan STanley för fåtal hundra pund. Sotheby's expansionsbakgrund från böcker till det bästa inom fin och dekorativ konst och smycken är likväl bakgrunden för global auktionsmarknaden, som definieras av häpnadsväckande ögonblick som fortsätter fånga världens uppmärksamhet.

Sedan 1744, Sotheby's har utmärkt sig som en av de ledande inom auktioner i världen. Säsong efter säsong har spetskompetensen som Sothebys erbjuder producerat rekordartade auktioner. Sotheby's har anförtrotts med försäljning av många av världens skatter, bland dem: Napoleons St Helena bibliotek, hertiginnan av Windsor juveler, godset av Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Rembrandts Aristoteles Byst av Homer, Rubens Massacre of the Innocents, Picassos Garçon à la Pipe, Bacon's Triptych 1976, The Grand Dual Collections av Baden, Qianlong Yellow-Ground Famille-Rose Double-Gourd vas, den 5000-åriga Guennol Lioness, Giacometti L'Homme Qui Marche I, Magna Carta, den första tryckningen av självständighetsförklaringen och Martin Luther King Jr Collection.

Sotheby's har sedan länge insett att de stora konstverken, liksom samlarintresserade bebor den globala sfären. Sotheby's var den första internationella auktionshuset att expandera från London till New York i 1955, och den första att bedriva försäljning i Hong Kong och dåvarande Sovjetunionen. Ett orubbligt åtagande på den allra högsta nivån av kvalitet, är målet för en av de mest sägenomspunna namn på den globala auktions scenen.

Ecriture No. 201-85
Exuding an exceptional sense of movement that is emphasised by a serene, monochrome colour palette, Ecriture No. 201-85 is a masterful example from Park Seo-Bo’s eponymous series. Spanning more than four decades, the highly influential Ecriture series stands at the very forefront of Korea’s leading post-war avant-garde movement Dansaekhwa, which translates into English as ‘monochrome painting’. By fusing writing with drawing, calligraphy with painting, and abstraction with figuration, Park Seo-Bo not only created a highly poetic aesthetic but intuitively merged the traditions of East and West. Nowhere is this more visible than in his distinctively purist works from the 1970s and 1980s, which form the core of the artist’s oeuvre and are today included in leading museum collections such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute, Chicago; and the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. The early works from the Ecriture series, which translates from French as ‘Writing’, comprise a series of line drawings in which pencil or wooden sticks are dragged through wet oil paint in a lyrical manner. In the present work, a regular grid of lines promotes a meditative sense of calm that is accentuated by its endless and rhythmic repetition. The dynamic and expressive brushstrokes pencilled into the wet paint create a vivid texture and through the mixture of pigment delicate colour nuances are revealed. While the long, elongated lines are reminiscent of Eastern calligraphy, the ‘writing’ ultimately becomes illegible and merges into an abstract idiom dominated by the flowing line of the energetic brushstroke. Aesthetically, Park Seo-Bo’s paintings from this period announce a subjective and emotive expressivity that reveals the artist’s self-discipline and psychological leanings; conceptually, the artist’s engagement with writing and the endless reverberation of the line embraces a cerebral and minimalistic rationality that is reminiscent of the graphic scribbles of artists such as Cy Twombly. Similar to Twombly’s famous series of Blackboard paintings, the free-floating movement of the artist’s hand achieves a dreamily abstract form that transposes the spheres of language and writing into metaphysical space. Reflecting on Park Seo-Bo’s paintings from this defining period, writer Soon Chun Cho ascertains, “by moving beyond image and expression, and focusing on the gesture, he learned to control himself and his surroundings. More importantly, he learned how to extend himself onto his canvas and become one with his work" (Soon Chun Co, ‘L'Art Informel and Park Seo-Bo's Early Career’, in: Soon Chun Cho and Barbara Bloemink, Empty the Mind: The Art of Park Seo-Bo, New York 2009, p. 20).\nSituated at a turning point in Korea’s post-war, post-colonial landscape, the Dansaekhwa artists around Park Seo-Bo sought to redefine the country’s cultural identity. Whilst the West experienced the ascension of gestural abstraction in the form of Abstract Expressionism in the US and its counterpart movement of Art Informel in Europe, Dansaekhwa artists independently developed a painterly language that would emphasise the physical nature of material and artwork. In particular the early works from the 1970s onwards, which were primarily conceived in neutral hues of white and earthy tones, aesthetically relate to Western Minimalists such as Robert Ryman and Robert Rauschenberg’s early White Paintings. However, by merging traditional painterly media with a poetic abstract style that is characteristically Korean, the Dansaekhwa artists and in particular Park Seo-Bo’s Ecriture series created meditative works of transcendental power that relate to traditional eastern sensibilities and the idea of the void and emptiness. In a conflation of conceptual rigour and meditative mark-making, Ecriture No. 201-85 is a vanguard example of Park Seo-Bo’s radical oeuvre and Dansaekhwa’s quest to redefine abstraction within modern-day painting.\nSigned, titled, dated 1985 and variously inscribed in English, Chinese and Korean characters on the reverse Sotheby's
